Rhonda’s 20 tips for Successful Blogging and Social Media Sharing

  1. Pay attention to your readers. Treat them like friends. Read and respond to their comments.
  2. Understand your stats. Look at what posts are getting the most views.
  3. Keep text short and sweet.
  4. Use powerful titles like ‘How to…’ and ‘5 Tips for…’
  5. Include photos in blog posts and when sharing on social media. No pics = no views. People love cute pictures of animals and photos that evoke emotion.
  6. Give out a positive vibe. Speak from your heart. Avoid social bickering. Delete negative comments rather than engaging in negativity.
  7. Say what you feel. Take a stand.
  8. Connect with the community.
  9. Be helpful. Give tips, advice and insights.
  10. Thank someone publicly for their service or kindness.
  11. Get involved. Participate in fundraising and raise awareness of worthy causes. Rhonda is a Canada 150 Community Leader.
  12. Be a spokesperson for your soul searching group. Connect with your tribe.
  13. Look to others to emulate their success. You do not need to reinvent the wheel. See if what others are doing works for you. Look at other blogs for ideas.
  14. Reciprocate. Share other people’s blogs and social media posts
  15. Encourage others.
  16. Ask friends to share your posts.
  17. Do giveaways and contests.
  18. Donate your products or services to silent auctions and fundraisers.
  19. Star Power. Connect with influencers.
